I’d mentioned earlier that I’d wanted to get into one of the new games on the horizon. I like LotRO a lot. It is however pretty similar to what’s already on the market (in terms of mechanics and fantasy genre MMO’s). I’d really like to start playing something that’s a little different. I’d looked into a lot of the upcoming games and nothing really struck my fancy, that is until I read the details on Fallen Earth [Link].
Fallen Earth is set as an apocalyptic themed MMO which is pretty different in it’s self. As a product of the 80′s I love apocalyptic story lines. Unlike a lot of the games on the market though, Fallen Earth veers further off the norm. We’re looking at a classless, first person shooter/role playing game hybrid, and so far I don’t see “raiding content” as one of the selling points.
Sad part is that it’s set for release on September 9, so I’m going to have to wait to play. From what I’ve been reading (and have seen on you-tube etc) it looks like it’ll be worth the wait.
